My homemade puplet X-Slacko Slim. It can install and use almost any linux package format natively including modules
My original project TazPuppy. Small, true multiuser, and highly portable.

The puppy 4.12-4.31

, and later developement & redevelopement by darry, mikeb, rerwin, tuxtoo, and others makes it my
favorite (note my favorite does not mean the same as my most useful)

jemimah released frisbee and it was backwards compatible to the 4.xx T2 puppies helping it along....

Still being supported and developed for.....

https://412collection.neocities.org/

https://sourceforge.net/projects/anitaos/

The original 5.xx series are a close second, talking about before the woofCE era (which deserves recognition in its own right,)
and the people currently developing deserve recognition for keeping it all going & bypassing all the obstacles current linux developement
throws in the way.

I have not voted. This because I have not tried many of the other pups listed.

One thing I do agree upon is the machine at hand. For old machines a series 2 kernel probaably works best... so maybe puppy 3-series. Stuff about 10 years old looks like Slacko5.7 (however, due to CPU problems needing a kernel fix, only a supported 3-series kernel can accomplish this... so Slacko5.8CE)

If you're lucky, like me, running an AtomCPU, Slacko5.7.

My opinion is the simpler, smaller, and effective... the better the pup.

Newer CPU's after 2011 could use anything made after Slacko5.7, it depends upon what one is familiar, and what one needs, and what browser one knows how to configure.

That last sentance escapes most people... they don't configure the browser, just add favorites/bookmarks.

Well, I'm surprised that I seem to have missed this thread..! Embarassed

What to choose, what to choose..? Eeeh, that's a hard one, that really is. I run around a dozen Pups, and I like every one of them; they all have their own 'character'.

I started with Tahr 6.0 CE in November '14. Soon followed by Micko's 'classic' Slacko 5.7.0. Tahr was the first Linux distro to run OOTB on ye ancient Dell lappie. Slacko has proved, again & again, to be absolutely rock-solid, and the best 'workhorse' of the lot. Sailor's 5.7.1 'upgrade' has just improved on an already flawless Puppy.

Racy, I just love playing around with.....and it's surprised me just what you can run with it. Same goes for Lucid 5.2.8.7.....and with discovering the age-related 'old-releases' repos at Ubuntu, it's not so hard to dig out necessary dependencies for Lupu. Precise 571 continues to amaze me; despite being nearly 2 years beyond EOL, the repos are all still available.

------------------------------------

I'm going to list my personal Top 5:-

1 ) Slacko 5.7.0
2 ) Slacko 5.6.0 (which I'm in right now, posting from Fred's current Quantum-portable, 64.0.2)
3 ) Xenialpup 7.0.8.1
4 ) Xenialpup64 7.5
5 ) Pemasu's Upup 'Raring'

(What can I say? The 'big' Compaq is 64-bit capable.....but I just like 32-bit Puppies. Always will.....and nowt's gonna persuade me otherwise!) Smile

@ darry:-

Y'know, I've heard much praise for 431 this last few years. Is it still possible to get .pets'n'stuff that will work with it? Am I right in thinking the website mikeb helps to maintain is a relevant one? Will 412 stuff work for 431?

And what about a 'modern' browser for it? I've no idea how old the glibc must be. Perhaps one of watchdog's Palemoon packages with the glibc 'tweak', yes?

I'm genuinely curious about this, now. If I can still get packages for it, I may well give it a look. I've had the ISO for a while now, but have always been uncertain about software availability.....
